Superfast Leicestershire is a £33m project, led by Leicestershire County Council to increase superfast fibre broadband coverage across Leicestershire in partnership with BT.

As part of our BT contracts, the first cabinet that was upgraded through this project was in Cossington on 4 July 2014. We expect over 700 cabinets will be upgraded to fibre broadband as the programme progresses into phase 2.

Through both contracts, we expect that 85,000 premises will have access to fibre broadband speeds.

We are working in partnership with BT Openreach, Government, District and Borough Councils, economic bodies, and voluntary and charity organisations to achieve this.
